What time is it? It’s time to turn y’all on to Sagittaire (a.k.a. Ivan Mairesse) and his new album Lucian & Caroline which I’m totally addicted to. Here is a good place to start to imagine if Mazzy Star, Portishead, Suicide, and the Fall decided to form a band, the outcome just might sound like this offering. Actually, what’s really endearing about this album is that all of the songs actually sound different from one another! Personally, when I heard the opening track “Confidence Man (feat. Nd0)” for the first time, I was instantly hooked. As a creative, Sagittaire has curated a sonic world where Serg Ginsburg would not mind hanging out! The next tune, “Hi, It’s Caroline,” sounds like a Beta Band or The Beach Boys (Pet Shop Era) song through a digital lens of audio alchemy. The title track is a romantic sonic stroll in the park and makes the sun shine on your inner thoughts! Yo, thank you Sagittaire for having the vision to manifest Lucian & Caroline, I’m digging it for sure.
